Trembling Bells are Alex Neilson‘s song-based group who seek to ‘reanimate the psychic landscapes of Great Britain and relocate them to some vague, mythic land where basic human crises are encountered and conquered’.

Watch them live and you soon realise these intriguing ambitions are realised brilliantly as Trembling Bells synthesise earlie musik modes and traditional folk with improvised playing, pure psychedelic noise, pop and wonderful soaring vocals to create a true departure into virgin territory. Strangely strange but oddly normal – catch this wonderfully eccentric band who cut a clearing amongst the trees of Albion’s more enchanted forests and invite you to come in and listen. Fresh from a highly successful collaboration and tour with Bonnie Prince Billy earlier this year, we welcome these wonderfully eccentric and interesting folk mavericks to Band on the Wall.

Support tonight comes in the form of the cosmic country and raw and unflinching folk  of Dan Haywood’s New Hawks.

This event will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks.
